EAST POINT, Ga. — Friends and family are asking for help finding two men who disappeared over the weekend and haven’t been heard from since.

Jason Salter and his best friend and business partner Kenny Guerra were last seen on Saturday in East Point. Now family and friends are preparing a search, looking for anything that will lead them to Jason and Kenny.

“We’re restless, we’re sleepless,” Salter’s cousin Michelle Johnson said.

Nearly one week later and still no word on the whereabouts of the two men.

“It’s just been a difficult 5 to 6 days not knowing where our loved ones are,” Johnson said.

Police say the two, who are best friends and own the Rockstar Lifestyle Print Shop in South Fulton County, were both last seen leaving the city of East Point on Saturday.

In a statement, an East Point police captain wrote in part:

“The East Point Police Department is familiar with two missing men from the area. Jason Salter and Kenny Guerra are listed as missing, and several jurisdictions are working together to locate the men. Missing reports were done in Hapeville and The City of South Fulton.”


“This is heavy because we’re in limbo,” Salter’s ex-girlfriend, Akiah Jones, told Channel 2′s Audrey Washington.

“These two guys, they are loved by so many,” friend Torey Tomlinson said.

According to friends of the men, Salter’s Altima was found in the parking lot of a Family Dollar on Delowe Drive in East Point. Guerra’s BMW was found parked at the Reserve at Birch Creek apartment complex in Southwest Atlanta.

Thursday, family and friends met with police and were expected to search the area around the apartment complex.

“We’re going to continue to show our effort till we have some answers,” Tomlinson said.

“It’s not common, it’s not like them for them to just go missing,” Johnson said.

Washington learned that Guerra’s son had just recently celebrated a birthday. Friends said Guerra would have never missed that moment.

Anyone with information on the men’s whereabouts is urged to call the police.
